(from Gemballa Press
Release) GEMBALLA TORNADO 750 GTS –The new striking super sports car in SUV format
There is only a little connection left between the GEMBALLA
TORNADO 750 GTS and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. At the most, the
Porsche SUV is the master model for the latest development by the
automobile manufacturer from Leonberg near Stuttgart. Already at
first glance, the targeted goal of the technicians at GEMBALLA
Automobiltechnik GmbH & Co. KG can be clearly defined: away from the
SUV and more to an uncompromising sports car. The reason for the
performed metamorphosis was the large amount of requests for a high
performance sports car with the dimensions and the spacious interior
of an SUV. 25 years of experience with innovative products based on
Porsche sports cars contributed to the development of this new
automobile. The unique signature of owner Uwe Gemballa is also
clearly visible with the TORNADO 750 GTS: 750 hp and a vehicle
weight reduced by 250 kg are only two unique selling points of this
superb automobile. Once again, the company confirms its expertise
when it comes to striking design and an especially powerful engine
Striking design for highest requirements
In order to meet the sports car´s increased requirements in terms of
light construction and torsional stiffness, Uwe Gemballa´s team
optimised nearly the entire auto body. For this reason, the
ultra-strength and especially light material carbon is mainly used.
A front apron extended by 60 millimetres with integrated aero lip
generates more downthrust at the front axle and in connection with
the also extended rear section it renders the typical elongated
sports car look. Extensive air inlets suck in additional fresh air
for the engine, oil- and air intercooler; and moreover, an air duct
system even brings the air to the front brakes. On the other hand,
the engine heat is effectively diverted by air ducts in the also
newly designed bonnet. The special highlight of the bonnet is its
fusion with the front wings and the new, converse opening mechanism.
Compared to the serial Cayenne, the one-part bonnet-wing-unit now
opens forward and therefore allows a better access to the engine.
The outstanding eye-catchers of the TORNADO flanks are the body
extensions which are fitted all the way from the front to the rear.
They make space for the extremely broad 12-inch rims and in
connection with the new side skirts they render a dynamic look.
The aerodynamics specialists also extensively optimised the rear
section. The rear skirt has been extended by 40 millimetres and for
additional downthrust, a race diffuser has been added. A rear
spoiler with carbon flaps perfects the aerodynamic overall package.
When designing the body kit, GEMBALLA does not leave any doubt that
the TORNAGO 750 GTS is a full-blooded sports car. In order to
emphasise this claim, GEMBALLA adds designer characteristics which
are typical for sports cars: Round double tail lights and four end
pipes of the high performance exhaust system which have been
integrated in the rear skirt, confirm the powerful appearance.
Extensive modifications at the driving gear render impressive
On the one hand, the combination of the sport exhaust system, the
sport catalysers and the optimised racing header render the sporty
and earthy sound of the V8. On the other hand this is a substantial
part of the profound modifications at the serial power engine of the
Cayenne Turbo. But the main feature of the engine makeover is the
increase of the cubic capacity up to five litres. Here, the GEMBALLA
engine experts fitted fortified forged pistons, special connecting
rods and racing turbochargers. An air intercooler with a 90 percent
larger cooling area supplies enough cold air. All these components
are precisely adjusted to each other with the help of new engine
The result: with a top performance of 750 hp / 552 kW at 6,400 rpm
and a maximum torque of 1,050 Nm at 3200 rpm, the GEMBALLA engine
meets the wishes of its ambitious customers from motor sports and
also renders excellent performance values. The 4WD automobile
accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in only 4.3 seconds and with a maximum
velocity of over 300 km/h, the GEMBALLA TORNADO 750 GTS is
significantly more powerful than its serial counterpart.
Running gear and wheels for adequate grip and agile handling
The TORNADO was equipped with an adjustable coilover kit which has
been especially adjusted to the enormous performance potential. This
allows lowering the car by up to 70 millimetres and therefore
permits a variable adjustment of the setup to every individual
driver and scope of use.
The right grip is provided by the tailor-made wheel-tyre combination
for the GEMBALLA TORNADO 750 GTS: The multi-part, especially
light GT SPORT forged rims are available in 12Jx22 with tyres
measuring 335/25 Z 22.
By manufacturing the wheels in forged technology, they are extremely
light. Moreover, the weight of the unsprung masses is reduced which
significantly improves the handling as well as acceleration and
The high-performance braking system with the punched and slit XXL
discs guarantees optimal deceleration values. In order to provide
the perfect gas pedal response, the GEMBALLA technicians used
6-piston brake callipers with 420mm discs at the front axle and
4-piston brake callipers with 380mm discs at the rear axle.
4-seater with state of the art interior
As usual, GEMBALLA builds the interior in an unsurpassable quality
and in an innovative design. The four single sports seats which
offer all passengers a unique seating experience when driving
winding roads are another highlight. The hand-holds which are
embedded in the rear centre console provide further support.
The new front centre console with the lifted gearbox and the Data
Control System renders a real cockpit feeling. The harmonically
integrated display presents driving data such as acceleration,
cross-acceleration and deceleration values. But also comfort is not
neglected in the TORNADO: Stylish and in artisan perfection,
GEMBALLA integrates state of the art Rear Seat Entertainment
components and combines these with finest materials, such as
high-quality leather, carbon fibre or aluminium.
GEMBALLA – the specialist for high end Porsche refinements and
innovative engineering design offers the GEMBALLA TORNADO GTS in a
limited edition of 50 cars for a price from 400,000 euros.
